Dr. Amy Sue Ott Ph.D., Registered Play Therapist and Family Counselor.

I am a private practice marriage and family therapist serving clients in and around Gainesville, Texas, as well as online as needed. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire. I offer therapy at my private practice located in Gainesville. I also provide teletherapy to those who wish to have therapy online.

Treatment Approach

I use a variety of approaches to address my client’s unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, family systems, play therapy, psychoeducational, relational psychotherapy, Sand tray therapy then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals who practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.
